Know your Value…

Career transition, job loss, and planning your career pathway may create self doubt, uncertainty and undermine confidence.  The next time you feel overwhelmed and you begin to question your self worth and contributions recall this short story, below.

I’m reminded of a famous story about Picasso: He was sitting in a park, drawing sketches. A woman recognized him and asked if he would draw her portrait. He agreed and spent a few minutes sketching. He handed over the picture and said something to the effect of, “Here you go, that will be $5,000.” “$5,000!” the woman exclaimed. “It only took you five minutes to draw that picture.” “No, madam,” he replied. “It took me my entire life!” — Picasso knew the value of developing talent, and he died rich, entertaining friends.

Toot your own horn! Avoid underestimating your true value…
